The Science of Assessing for Successful Fit

Whether you’re replacing executives or adding to the team, you can’t risk a bad hire. Lodestone starts with the foundation of understanding your specific business, the associated investment thesis, and the top three business imperatives an executive must execute. This Understanding Business Context process is essential for our ability to “wire” validated, scientific assessment methods, competencies, and personality characteristics into the specific candidate assessment designed for your executives. We then provide you information on competencies, personality (including risks of derailing!), and likelihood of success in meeting your business imperatives. The cost of a bad executive hire is simply too great to leave to chance, your gut, or the word of an executive search firm who is overly eager to sell you on their candidate.

Our robust executive assessment process is not just for selection. Many organizations use it as the foundation for executive development and in succession planning.
